ECR Partners with Oaktown 8s for Fall Blast Classes
ECR is joining forces with Oaktown 8s to offer two sets of Blast Classes over the next three months. Our "Blue" Blast Class students will be completing the Plus series of calls in two weekend sessions in Oakland on Sunday, August 4 and Sunday, August 18 with follow-up practice sessions at ECR and Oaktown. Angels needed!
Our next beginner-level Blast Class ("Indigo") takes place in Oakland on three Sundays: September 29, October 13, and October 27, also with practice sessions on Wednesdays at both ECR and Oaktown.
Kurt Gollhardt is the instructor for all the Blast sessions.

July 6: Allan Gets the Boot
Congratulations to ECR's Allan Hurst on receiving the prestigious Golden Boot Award, the highest honor of the gay square dancing world, at this year's IAGSDC Convention in Philadelphia. Allan was chosen by last year's winners, Barry and Pam Clasper, for his work on the IAGSDC History Wiki, the Gay Callers Association's Call Sheet newsletter, and so much more. Well done, Allan!
June 25: Congratulations to our A2 Grads!
We had a big turnout for our A2 Graduation celebration. Dancers from ECR and other local clubs came out to celebrate with the new grads, and dance to our caller/instructors Michael Levy, Dave Decot and Kurt Gollhardt. Speechifying, diplomas and cake, and review instructor Allan Hurst brought the donuts.
